Ray Barone seemingly has it all. A wonderful wife, a beautiful family, a great job, a nice house on Long Island. There's only one problem. His obnoxious parents (who live across the street) and his jealous brother are always getting in the way. Written by
Patricia Heaton's father, Chuck Heaton, is a retired sportswriter - Ray Barone's profession - for the Cleveland Plain Dealer. He was mentioned in one episode, where Ray was up for an award against a writer named Chuck Heaton. In the episode, Debra offers up a 'Bronx cheer' when her real-life father's name is mentioned.

In one particular episode, one of the actors accidentally refers to Doug Heffernan (of King of Queens, as played by Kevin James) as "Kevin" - his real life name. Kevin James appeared 9 times in "Everybody Loves Raymond." In the first six appearances, during seasons one and two, his character was simply referred to as "Kevin." In the final three appearances, during season three, he portrayed his "Doug Heffernan" character from "The King of Queens." This is probably because the final appearance as "Kevin" took place in May of 1998, while "The King of Queens" did not debut until September of 1998. See more »
Everybody Loves Raymond is just one of those shows you can't get enough of. I remember watching it as a child everyday before dinner, getting excited to watch all the Barone family drama and getting a good laugh out of it, even today. I absolutely love the characters and plot of each episode because as a viewer, you never really know what you're in for or what the Barones have in store for you and that's what makes it stand out in my books. Beautiful. Funny. Hilarious. You name it, this show has it all. If you're looking for a show where you quite literally form a special bond with the characters and stories, then Everybody Loves Raymond is the show for you. Great for the family and kids and never yields to disappoint. 10/10!
